Offered is a lovely pair of antique Scottish provincial silver sugar tongs, circa the first or early second quarter of the 19th Century. This piece is struck twice on one arm with a maker's mark of "E", often assigned to James Erskine of Aberdeen; the other arm bears a hallmark that looks like a circle or ring. This piece also has a period engraved monogram done in a typically Scottish style. This piece measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 42 grams. All in all a lovely exam...

Offered is a lovely pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs marked Gordon in italicized lettering on each arm; this mark resembles one of the maker's marks attributed by the Darling Foundation to George Gordon of Newburgh, NY, working circa 1800-24. The only difference is that the mark in the Darling book also has a first name initial - G.GORDON in italicized lettering. It may be that the die for this mark was damaged and re-cut to eliminate all but the last name. It is also just possi...

Offered is a very fine pair of West Virginia coin silver dessert spoons by scarce Wheeling maker Artemas O. Fairchild, who commenced his business around 1839 and after many years relocated to Missouri. These spoons by style should date to the first years of his West Virginia period. Each spoon is engraved with a complicated period script monogram and each has a good legible maker's mark. These spoons each measure about 7 inches in length and the pair weighs about 58 grams. Condition is good ...

Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Anthony, who worked in that city from 1783-1809 on his own and from 1810-14 with his sons. This pair of tongs by style should date to about 1805-09 but could be a bit earlier. The maker's mark is one of Joseph Anthony's working alone, so this piece likely dates to no later than 1809. The maker's mark (see pics) is lightly struck, as is the case with most pieces by Mr. Anthony, and appears...

Offered is a very rare example of late 18th Century New York style decoration on a relatively tiny early American coin silver salt spoon, bearing the maker's mark of silversmith Thomas Burger. Mr. Burger and his father John Burger (working circa 1775-1807) were briefly in partnership circa 1805 and then Thomas Burger advertised alone circa 1806. After that he seems to disappear from directories, and I haven't found much information on him, despite his fame and that of his father. Presumably T...

All in all a nice example of this man's output!

Offered is a scarce pair of late Kentucky coin silver spoons bearing the mark of jeweler Frank Maier of Bowling Green, KY. Maier, a German immigrant, came first to Louisville and lived there until about the age of 25, whereupon he moved to Bowling Green and established his own jewelry store around 1881. These two teaspoons each measure about 5 3/4 inches in length, and the pair weighs a total of about 32 grams. Each spoon bears a nicely executed period engraved script monogram of "BVY" or "BU...

Offered is a nice New Orleans coin silver tablespoon by Horace E. Baldwin & Co., who had a retail shop on Chartres St. in New Orleans in the 1840s. This piece came with some Alabama silver from an estate in Mobile, and presumably was purchased by the original owner in New Orleans. This pieces measures about 8 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 50 grams. It has a good maker's mark or retailer's mark and period script monograms to the front and back. The same engraver appears to have done b...

Offered is a very good Georgian English sterling silver OEP sauce or gravy ladle, fully hallmarked for London, 1810 and bearing a maker's mark that is almost certainly for members of the Bateman family (Peter and William), though it is a little rubbed. The armorial or crest is of a long-necked bird that appears to be a mythological beast, emerging from a crown or coronet. It is nicely executed. This piece measures about 6 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 60 grams. It is in excellent ove...

This piece has a rubbed but legible maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram, perhaps of "CF".

This piece is engraved with a period armorial of a mailed? arm grasping what appears to be a riding crop. This master salt spoon is heavy and large, measuring about 4 1/2 inches in length and weighing about 28 grams. Condition is fairly good, with some surface wear from a century and a half of use, but no dents, splits or repairs. There ...

Offered is a scarce American coin silver youth set (or at least the fork and knife) in the fiddlethread pattern by Marquand & Co., led by Frederick Marquand (active in Savannah, Georgia and New York City). This set would have been made in New York City between 1833 and 1838. As such, they can't be considered Southern coin silver. The hollow handles and good condition of the pieces are unusual features for this date, and the knife bears a well-struck maker's mark for this firm. The fork has n...

This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. Condition is barely ...

Offered is a lovely example of a rare form in early American coin silver - a coffin-end pattern sauce or gravy ladle. This piece measures a little under 8 inches in length and weighs about 46 grams. It bears a lovely period script monogram of what appears to be "DSH". This piece has no maker's mark. Condition overall is very good, with no dents, splits or repairs; however there is a little spot on the underside of the handle where someone unfamiliar with antique silver did a scratch test (se...

This ladle is engraved "C" in period script and is marked three times with Hill's maker's mark of C.Hill in a serrated rectangular punch. This maker's mark is sometimes mis-attributed to another Charles Hill, working in Canadaigua, NY circa 1815-17. However, this piece ...
